    I think I found the answer. you can change page number language by selecting it and press clt+shift. you can change it to English by selecting the page number and press the other clt+shift. I hope it helps.

Solution is to mark the page number in header/footer then push the "Right-to-left text direction" button in Home tab. That works for me


Just select the page number and change the font to your desired font of language, but make sure it is an ANSI font, UNICODE fonts DO NOT seem to work in this case. That's literally it.

If you need to add anything with the page number, change it back to your regular one.
